This is a pair of French Old Paris porcelain vases with neoclassical scenes on a claret ground, made circa 1870. Old Paris porcelain is an antique term also referred to as Vieux Paris represents the ornately decorated porcelain created in and around Paris by more than 30 different factories from 1850 to 1870. They rarely marked the pieces with a logo or maker mark, so this term Old Paris porcelain is used these days to describe the wares. These vases are in excellent condition and have a value of $800 to $1000 for the pair. It is important for you to click the stars after you have read this answer.
